Students who desire honors in art or art history should make
arrangements with a faculty sponsor during their junior year and should submit
a two-page proposal to the department faculty. Upon approval, students may
enroll in honors courses during their senior year. In recognition of
satisfactory completion of the departmental honors program, the registrar will
note on the student's permanent record "Honors in Art."
To quality for honors in studio art or electronic arts,
students must fulfill all departmental requirements plus the following:
1. Maintain a 3.5 grade-point average in the courses
required for the art major and a 3.2 cumulative grade-point average in the
entire undergraduate program.
2. Complete a 6-credit honors program (usually in the senior
year) during which they must complete a senior project. Studio art and
electronic arts students must enroll in two sequential 3-credit courses, Honors
in Art, and complete a senior project approved by a faculty adviser.
